    Bee's wax smells good enough to eat. My friend was teaching a class when a 10 year old boy grabbed some thread conditioner, that blue stuff, and ate the whole thing. We alsways wondered if he had an excessively smooth bowel movement after that.

        Whoa! That's yucky. I'm glad my kids didn't like the taste of my wax, but they love to stick pins and needles in it.
        They've even sewn thru it with a needle and thread, round and round. is what it is...

          My littlest guy likes to try to bite into my wax. If I turn just for a second, he's got the wax and there are a bunch of little chomp marks in the wax! :p

            Maybe it's a throw back to about 35 or so years, when we could buy those little drinks that came in a wax bottle that we could chew afterwards. Or maybe those bright red, waxy lips you could play with, then chew the flavored wax?!?!?!

            I used to have to hide my beading wax because my cats and dogs would love to get a hold of the unprocessed bees wax (it's darker and smells more like honey) cake and just eat it all up.

            I love my tipi's. I'll never be homeless with them.

                I get bee's wax from the local honey producers. Its all cleaned and I melt it and pour it into ice cube trays or mini muffin tins. That way we always have a clean, portable pices of wax.

                When I work on big projects I often get yellowed fingers like a heavy smoker and I don't even smoke. Its from the wax.

                  I miss those waxed bottles with flavor in it. :Chatter

                  I have to hide my wax from the dogs. I left one out once and woke up to pieces of chewed wax all over the floor. It's that fresh stuff they like the best.

                    Eating the Wax

                    Nothng strange about eating Bees' wax. Afterall is it what the Bees' use to make their combes, etc.

                    In fact Honeycomb has been a favorite food of many cultures inlcuding Native America. I can remember when every jar of Honey had as least some Comb in it. Now only a few producers of Honey put any comb in the jar.

                    Just make sure the wax is clean and has not been processed with any chemicals or other stuff.

                        Hey you can still buy those wax bottles with flavored liquid inside. I can find them at the quick trip and sometimes at the grocerystore. As a matter of fact I was feeling nostalgic awhile back and bought me a bag of them. Good stuff!!:Chatter
